MRP – R16

Written by Motts on July 11 2016

CARLTON forward Levi Casboult has become the second player in two weeks to be suspended for a ‘tummy tap’ after the Match Review Panel handed him a one-match ban for striking Kyle Hartigan.

In a verdict that will put all players on notice, Casboult’s punch to the stomach of his opponent was graded as intentional conduct with medium impact to the body.

It underlines a willingness from the MRP to come down harder on players for such strikes after the issuing of $1000 fines failed to deter them from blatantly punching opponents.

Casboult will miss Sunday’s clash against West Coast at the MCG if he accepts the sanction. The Blues have until 11am Tuesday to weigh up a challenge.

Essendon midfielder David Zaharakis was last week suspended for one match for striking West Coast’s Jackson Nelson in the stomach in similar circumstances.

It was the first of 16 so-called ‘tummy taps’ to be graded medium impact, pushing the punishment beyond the financial sanction that had been the norm this season.

West Coast ruckman Scott Lycett has escaped with a $1000 fine for striking North Melbourne’s Jack Ziebell.

The Eagle cannoned into Ziebell when he didn’t have the ball, making contact to his opponent’s head with his shoulder. The hit was assessed as careless conduct with low impact to the head.

Fremantle midfielder Lachie Weller can also accept a $1000 fine for making forceful front-on contact to Melbourne speedster Jayden Hunt.

Hunt had his head over the ball and was taking possession when Weller chose to bump him and made high contact, with the MRP grading the incident as careless conduct with low impact to the head.

In a busy week for the MRP, seven players in total were charged.

Collingwood’s Brayden Maynard was fined $1000 for striking Greater Western Sydney forward Steve Johnson.

Brisbane Lions captain Tom Rockliff can accept a $1000 fine for striking Gold Coast midfielder Aaron Hall.

West Coast’s Sharrod Wellingham and Patrick McGinnity can each accept $1000 fines for misconduct against North Melbourne’s Drew Petrie and Sam Gibson respectively.

The MRP threw out match-day reports against Gold Coast defender Nick Malceski and St Kilda midfielder Seb Ross.

The Panel said Malceski was contesting the ball when contact was made between him and Brisbane Lions midfielder Daniel Rich.

Ross, meanwhile, was not guilty of rough conduct on Essendon’s Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti after replays clearly showed there was no high contact made in his spoiling attempt against the exciting Bomber.

  1. Unbelievable that Lycett gets away with a headshot that would have nearly killed McCartin but Casboult gets a week, I’m not a Carlton supporter FYI
